When you've got to go on stage and drum your heart out it's hard to load up on big, boozy beers. Manchester Orchestra's Tim Very has learned his lesson and prefers to reach for a good, crisp drinkin' beer before a show. Stella and Bud Light are stocked for them when on tour but during his downtime, he's a regular and his local craft beer bar and even has a few collaborations under his belt. A new one is coming soon with Creature Comforts and Bearded Iris, which will launch just before (and be on tap at) The Stuffing festival in Atlanta this November.
We share a few craft drinkin' beers with Tim as we chat about beer and band collaborations, playing shows at breweries, the growth of the Georgia beer scene, beards, and what's in store for Manchester Orchestra in the near future.
Tim has recently launched a podcast where he talks with creative people doing awesome things, you should check it out. Recent guests include O'Brother drummer Michael Martens, Kraig Torres of Hop City and Barleygarden, and Bryan Schroeder of The Giving Kitchen. He's also active on Instagram and YouTube.
